PRP Microneedling (Vampire Facials)

microneedling-prp-vampire-facialsPlatelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments – more commonly known as “Vampire Facials” – provide volume, lift, wrinkle-smoothing, and tightening in a 30 minute treatment with no downtime or discomfort.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Made popular by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Victoria’s Secret model Bar Rafaeli, the treatment can also help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and slack pores. While most providers administer the plasma via dozens of sticks with a standard Botox needle, Dr Kirwan has taken the procedure a step further with the addition of the DermaFrac microneedling vacuum pen, which sends the plasma deep beneath the skin via tiny, painless needles. In addition to a more comfortable patient experience, Dermafrac provides more even PRP distribution than the needle technique, and the addition of the microneedles boost the collagen-building effects of the growth hormones in the patient’s plasma.

We also offer serum-based microneedling treatments for patients desiring an alternative to using their own plasma. Each serum targets the individual’s specific area of desired improvement; patients can select from Rejuvenating, Hydrating, Clarifying or Lightening.

When "Vampire facials" treatment results appear

Results from the treatment appear in as little as a week, and the production of new collagen can continue for up to a year. Dr Kirwan recommends a series of three treatments for maximum results. Vampire facials are appropriate for all skin types, and can benefit patients of all ages, from teens seeking acne relief and clearer skin to seniors looking for a non-invasive wrinkle and sagging solution.
